IB Lab JSx™ – Joint Space Width/Area Assessments

Customers for this solution are radiologists as users of imaging systems as well as orthopedists (and rheumatologists) as therapeutic decision makers. In addition to a single user license, the applications developed by IB Lab are also to be offered as a web-based, SaaS application. For clinical trials conducted by research institutes and/or pharmaceutical companies, the solution offers retrospective/prospective evaluation of image data as an opportunity to evaluate therapeutic influences objectively and in a standardized manner.

  •    Reproducible assessment of bone-joint diseases and the therapeutic effect
